Catalysis in Petrochemical Processes Book Description :

The field of petrochemicals started some years ago with the simple addition reaction of water to propylene for the production of isopropyl alcohol. Currently, the petrochemical industry has become a multi-billion dollar enterprise which encompasses a wide field of chemical products. Almost all the basic organic reactions such as hydrogenation, alkylation, substitution, polymerization, etc. are utilized for the production of these chemicals. It may not, however, have been possible to establish this huge industry without the use of different catalysts. In other words, the great advancements in the catalytic area have supported the vast developments in the petrochemical field. In this book, we have adopted the idea of discussing the petrochemical industry from the point of view of reactants' activities and susceptibilities toward different catalysts. The book is thus classified according to the reaction type. This will eriable students and other users of the book to base their understanding of the petrochemical field on the fundamental principles learned in chemistry. How ever, the first chapter is aimed at establishing some basic facts on the petro chemical industry and its major uses. It discusses, without going into details, the raw materials used, the intermediates and the downstream products. The next eight chapters discuss in some detail the main reactions and the catalysts used for the production of chemicals and polymers from petroleum. The last chapter is devoted to a discussion of some of the practical techniques used in the catalytic field.

Catalysts for Fine Chemical Synthesis Catalysis by Polyoxometalates Book Description :

Whole journals are devoted to catalysis and books describe the various catalysts. However it is very difficult to find detailed protocols offering information on where to source catalysts, how to store them, how to activate them for the synthesis, how to perform the actual synthesis and how to recycle the catalysts out of the synthesis process. This new series of books (accompanied by CD-ROM) addresses all these issues. Each volume publishes approximately 40 detailed procedures and makes use of different catalysts. They are classified according to the type of reaction they are catalysing and in addition a section included incorporates reviews, comparisons between the different types of catalysts and highlights from research in the previous year. It includes approximately 40 detailed procedures and describes the use of different catalysts and is classified according to the type of reaction they perform. The chemist has a vast choice of high-tech catalysts to use when working in fine chemical synthesis but the catalysts are hard to use and require both skill and experience to handle properly. This book contains tested and validated procedures and provides a unique resource for chemists who work in organic chemistry.

Heterogeneous Catalysis in Organic Chemistry Book Description :

The features of this book which will be of special interest to academic organic chemists are the introduction (Chapter 1), which presents a short course on the concepts and language of heterogeneous catalysis, covers organic reaction mechanisms of hydrogenation (Chapter 2), hydrogenolysis (Chapter 4), and oxidation (Chapter 6), a presents problems and solutions specific for running heterogeneous catalytic organic reactions in solution. These materials can supplement advanced chemistry courses. Most synthetic organic chemists use a variety of "protecting groups" which they attach to functional groups (reactive groups of atoms) while some reaction is being conducted on another part of the molecule. These protecting groups prevent reactions of the functional groups during other reactions and are removed later by a heterogeneous catalytic method called hydrogenolysis. One unique feature of this book, not found in other books on catalysis, is an exhaustive chapter (Chapter 4) on hydrogenolysis, which is dredged from the recent synthetic literature published by modern organic chemists. Academic organic chemists should find this chapter extremely useful and may wish to adopt the book as a supplement for advanced organic chemistry courses designed for seniors and for graduate students. It will also be useful for professors and their research groups engaged in synthetic organic chemistry. Many academic organic chemists are not aware of recent advances in heterogeneous enantioselective catalysis (Chapter 3) or in selective low temperature, liquid phase heterogeneous catalytic oxidations by hydrogen peroxide (Chapter 6). These specialty topics are timely and may be new to academic organic chemists and can be used to supplement their advanced courses. Several features of this book will also be of special interest to industrial chemists who are unfamiliar with heterogeneous catalysis. Many good organic chemists are hire by industry. They synthesize a new compound using standard

Mechanisms in Homogeneous Catalysis Book Description :

While chemists using spectroscopic methods need to learn from the specialists, they do not normally read the spectroscopists' original papers. This book provides this very information -- summarizing some recent advances in the mechanistic understanding of metallocene polymerization catalysts and the role of NMR spectroscopy in these endeavors. Adopting a real practice-oriented approach, the authors focus on two of the most important spectroscopic techniques with two parts devoted to each of NMR and IR spectroscopy - as well as on important industrial applications with regard to the reaction discussed. Rather than providing a complete and exhaustive review of homogeneous hydrogenation and its detailed mechanisms, the book focuses on the specific spectroscopic techniques and the mechanistic information that has been obtained from their application. The result is unique in its scope, allowing chemists from different fields to learn which techniques can be applied for their specific synthetic problems. The prizewinning editor, Professor Brian Heaton, is the key player in the field, and has brought together here a team of authors to cater for specialists, and researchers in industry and academia.
